Thanksgiving Dinner
Make plans to celebrate Thanksgiving with the Andover family this Sunday, November 22 with a turkey and dressing meal after the 11:10 service. We are honored to have the Lexington Police Department officers from the Bureau of Patrol and Bureau of Special Operations as our guests to express of our gratitude for their service to our community. Cost is $8 per person / $20 max per family.

Building Project Informational Sessions
Over the course of the next four Sundays (11.22, 11.29, 12.6 and 12.13) we will be hosting informational sessions during the Sunday School hour in the Sanctuary.  The purpose of these sessions is to get your feedback on the initial building concept and make sure we are all informed about the project. Please make plans to join us on one of the mornings to find out more and give your input.

Angel Tree 
We are once again participating in an Angel Tree program for the families at High Street Neighborhood and the Methodist Home for Children in Versailles. Please stop by the back of the sanctuary and pick up a tag. The gifts need to be returned by Sunday, Dec 13th. Thank you in advance for supporting this effort.

Stewardship Pledges
God loves it when the giver delights in the giving. 2 Cor 9.7
If you didn’t get one last Sunday, there are additional pledge cards for the 2016 General Fund available on the information table. The pledges help us make our budget plans for the next year. The cards may be returned in the offering plate, mailed to 200 W High St., 40507 or online at 1stumc.org. Please respond by Dec 1.
 
Rachel Circle Christmas Dinner 
The United Methodist Womens’ Rachel Circle will have their Christmas dinner on Thursday, December 3rd at the home of Ray and Betty Hornback, 3629 Cayman Ln, 40509. Spouses are invited. It is a delightful potluck dinner. The drinks, meat and bread will be provided, so bring a favorite side dish to share. Please RSVP to Betty Hornback at 299-5616.

Also this year instead of exchanging ornaments, please bring cash or a gift card for the church benevolent fund.
